Player Notes
Ruben Tejada had three hits and scored twice in five at-bats as the Mets took down the Padres on Monday.

Advice: Tejada now has three multi-hit games out of his last four. He doubled and scored in the first inning, then singled and scored in the fifth. Tejada was recently anointed the club's regular third baseman by manager Terry Collins. He has good job security as long as David Wright is out and he's hitting. Tejada is batting .274/.357/.419 with eight RBI and nine runs scored in 70 plate appearances.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that he'll use Ruben Tejada as the team's primary third baseman for the time being.

Advice: The Mets have been struggling for stability at the position since David Wright went down, and with Tejada swinging a hot stick at the moment he'll get a chance to be in the lineup everyday. He could be worth a look as a middle infield option in NL-only or deeper mixed leagues.

Ruben Tejada finished 1-for-4 with an RBI double in Sunday's win against the Marlins.

Advice: Tejada broke a 3-3 tie in the bottom of the seventh inning with an RBI double to left-center. The three-game set against the Marlins, in which he went 5-for-13, rejuvenated Tejada's bat, raising his OPS from .641 to .724. He still doesn't have any fantasy value, however.

Ruben Tejada went 2-for-4 with three RBI in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

Advice: Tejada stepped up against Tom Koehler in the fourth with the bases loaded. He proceeded to unload them, doubling to center to tie the game at 5-5. The Mets wouldn't find much traction moving forward, though, ultimately losing 9-5 to the Marlins. Tejada is hitting .245/.344/.377 with a homer and seven RBI over 53 at-bats this season. He's not a relevant fantasy piece.

Sun, May 31 Rotoworld
Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Ruben Tejada will be given multiple starts at third base.

Advice: Eric Campbell has really struggled at the hot corner, so the Mets will give Tejada a long look at the position. With David Wright (back) looking like he'll be sidelined for a while long, Tejada could settle into the position for a while if he plays well.
